Virginie de Valandraud 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

Virginie de Valandraud 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose is aromatic, elegant and precise. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of blue fruits, coffee associated with touches of violet, black cherry as well as slight hints of liquorice, nutmeg and gray pepper. The palate is fruity, precise, elegant, delicate, well-built and offers a small density, a slight suavity as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of black cherry associated with small touches of blue fruits, crushed raspberry as well as hints of flowers, Zan, discreet hints of tobacco and mocha / coffee. Good length. Tannins are fine and very slightly firm. The wine needs to be put in carafe.
